Perfect Integration says "No" to Internet Explorer 8 and "Yes" to Google Chrome

Internet Explorer 8 Beta 2 - Better, but not yet the best

When Mozilla released its later betas of Firefox 3, I quickly became enthusiastic about the open-source browser, which I still think is the best one you can use on a Windows, Mac or Linux computer.

That's unusual, because often I warn all but the most tech-savvy readers away from beta software. But Firefox 3 was stable and had features that instantly made it a must-have.

Now, Microsoft has released the second beta of Internet Explorer 8 and it up against another new entry into the market from Google called, "Chrome".

Perfect Integration after testing both web browsers says "No" to Internet Explorer 8 and "Yes" to google Chrome for the following reasons:

*Internet Explorer 8 is not compatable with Google toolbar
*It has too many annoying security options that slow you down
*Switch to Google Chrome for the best web browsing experience

My initial experience was not good, with IE8 crashing and, at one point, breaking the ability of Windows Live Writer to copy and paste. I eventually uninstalled it from my primary test system, a Windows Vista installation running in Parallels 3 on my iMac.

While I liked IE8's new features, the instability put me off, and the result was a blog post on Wednesday that wasn't very positive as you'll see in my video below.



I'm not sure I'd advise putting it on a system you rely on to do serious work. You may want to wait for a release candidate, or the finished version, which should come late this year or early next. try out Google Chrome until then you won't be sorry!

That said, there are some very intriguing features in IE8. It's a little faster than IE7, but doesn't match Google Chrome's remarkable speed. And Google makes it easier to find what you're looking for, and to quickly make use of that information once you track it down.

Switch to Google Chrome for your in-office web-browser and notice the speed difference right away.
